      Comments about Samsung PN51E8000 51" Class PDP HDTV:

      Plasma is the way to go.
      Great picture settings.
      Smarthub works well. Could be mpre responsive.

      The Search works great per voice control.
      The Gesture and voice control work. But not that good that it replaces the remote. There are too few voice commands.
      have not used the additional touch control at all. Tired it, but the regular remote that comes with it, is the way to go.

      The Ir Blaster to control additional devices is very limited. But works as well.
